Orie Retrial Delayed By Appeal

By: Harold Hayes

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Judge Jeffrey Manning has delayed the retrial of State Sen. Jane Orie until Superior Court responds to Orie’s latest appeal.

This morning, Orie’s lawyers asked the Superior Court to stop the retrial or at least assign the case to a new judge.

Her first trial resulted in a mistrial when prosecutors alleged the defense produced forged documents and the judge agreed.

Although Superior Court has not yet ruled on Orie’s latest request, the judge’s prior order allowed for a delay if the defense sought an answer from Superior Court for permission to appeal.

Jury selection in the retrial had been scheduled for Monday. There’s no word on how long it may take for the appeals court to review the defense requests.
